Reasonably good. The qualifications for a P1 Employment Pass is a minimum salary of S$7000/mo. You easily qualify for that (A degree is not necessary if you income is above 7k/mo) so it's only the Employer that needs to convince the MOM that they need a foreigner because they cannot find/use a local to do the same job.

Please do not duplicate post across multiple threads. Thanks

Thank you very much for your reply and advice. I just got email from HR and my EP has been approved in principle (P1). but HR has filled that I have BA degree in my application. ( I have told them that I did not complete my degree) Will MOM asked my degree certificate , when I go to collect my EP pass?

Honestly, I don't know. As it's a P1 it shouldn't be necessary due to the income range which is the primary criteria for that level. But I really don't know.

i don't think anybody should lie on those applications - you might want to inform immigration when you arrive in singapore as it's through no fault of your own. why not bring along your transcripts just to back your case up?
